Abstract

In summary, memetics can survive as a data-oriented branch of the social simulation field specializing in the evaluation of co-evolutionary or cultural models. Most of that evaluation will be negative, as the nature of the real world can never be confirmed using a computer model. Nevertheless, it may help us to identify cases where our a priori thinking about a cultural phenomenon is inadequate. Karl Popper would have been pleased with this.
